Looking for help on a crochet pattern shawl. The pattern says to perform a ch sp incr. I understand what the ch sp is, but not sure what to do on the ch sp incr.

Pattern reads as follows:

Row 2 : Ch3, 1 DC into base on turning Ch, 1 DC into next stitch, Ch sp incr, DC into next 2 stitches, Ch sp incr, DC into next 2 stitches, ...

Does this mean that I put a DCin the ch sp with an added ch?

This is the pattern link:

Thanks in advance for you help.

At the top of the pattern, under abbreviations, it states:

Ch Sp incr = (DC, Ch1, DC) into Ch Space

These are the instructions in the abbreviations at the beginning of the pattern. Ch Sp incr = (DC, Ch1, DC) into Ch Space

Don't I feel foolish. This isn't the only time that I didn't read the instructions completely. Thanks for the reply.

Don't you hate it when the special abreviations are sort of hidden? I guess that is why everyone hammers on the advice of reading a pattern through completely before starting. I've been mystified by an abreviation before only to find it in some obscure corner of the pattern. You aren't alone!
